The inspirational business story of Huawei: how to grow from start up to world leader in two decades…

With over 170,000 employees in more than 170 countries and regions, serving more than one-third of the world's population, how does entrepreneur Ren Zhengfei manage a telcoms giant called Huawei? What is the secret to Huawei’s global success?

In 1987, a 44-year-old man founded a telecom equipment-trading firm in Shenzhen, China, with start-up capital of $5,000. In 29 years, it grew to become the largest telecoms company in the world.

This book goes behind the scenes to explore the story of what Ren Zhengfei did differently, how the company he started reached the top spot, and why Huawei is known as a "collective" and not a private company:

Learn how this Chinese start up business became an international success Understand the business strategy, leadership skills and management philosophy of Huawei’s entrepreneurial founder Get tips, inspiration and motivation for your own business start-up.

14 years of meticulous research and 136 senior management and employee interviews reveal how Huawei's international business success lies in its ability to transform the intellectual elite into a band of soldiers with the same set of values and resolve, while at the same time preventing a culture of subservience.

This fascinating story provides a unique glimpse into the machinations of one of the world’s most powerful companies.

"The company serves as an example for many Chinese entrepreneurs striving to go global, and also presents valuable lessons for Western companies striving to integrate Eastern and Western values and ways of looking at business." - Co-author David De Cremer, KPMG Professor of Management Studies at Cambridge Judge Business School

This book combines chapters written by leading social psychologists and economists, illuminating the developing trends in explaining and understanding economic behavior in a social world.

It provides insights from both fields, communicated by eloquent scholars, and demonstrates through recent research and theory how economic behaviors may be more effectively examined using a combination of both fields.

Social Psychology and Economics comes at a particularly fitting time, as a psychological approach to economics has begun to flourish in recent years, and papers exploring the intersection of these two disciplines have appeared in peer-reviewed journals, opening a dynamic dialogue between previously separated fields.

This volume, the first in the Society for Judgment and Decision Making Series since acquired by Psychology Press, includes chapters by economists and psychologists. It addresses a variety of economic phenomena within a social context, such as scarcity and materialism, emphasizing the importance of integrating social psychology and economics.

Social Psychology and Economics is arranged in seven parts that discuss:

an introduction to the topic; preferences, utility, and choice; emotions; reciprocity, cooperation, and fairness; social distance; challenges to social psychology and economics; and collaborative reflections and projections.

The market for this book is students, researchers, and professionals in the disciplines of economics, psychology, business, and behavioral decision making. Graduate students and upper-level undergraduate students will consider it a useful supplemental text.
